Why stay in a boutique hotel in Rome when you can stay in your very own luxury apartment at the very heart of the Eternal City? The 5 contemporary apartments at CasaCau offer the comforts and services of a luxury hotel and more in a passionately restored 17th-century building by the Fontana di Trevi. CasaCau will not only be your home during your stay in Rome, but you will have the luxury of feeling at home and have the privilege of being able to live like like a local and discover hidden corners of the real Rome.
Flavia and Kevin are around and on hand for advice or Marco, the chef at the “Stazione di Posta”, CasaCau’s nearby restaurant next to the Macro museum of contemporary art, will, on request, organise your shopping for you, or prepare an exclusive dinner in your apartment. Marco will also suggest a few seasonal recipes which guests can either cook for themselves at home.
Each of the 5 apartments at CasaCau has a different style, personality, feel and lay out, suiting the different characters of guests who will have the impression of living in their own home. All of the boutique hotel-style apartments at CasaCau have dining spaces and open plan kitchens, and every morning fresh supplies are provided for your breakfast. The 17th-century building has been restored in such a way that original features and historical charm go hand in hand with the contemporary and vintage design elements used throughout CasaCau. Three of the apartments are equipped with a Turkish bath, one has a shower and bath and another has a sauna. Apartment with Balcony is 45sqm and can sleep up to 3 people and has a Turkish bath and a small terrace looking onto the market square. Studio Apartment is smaller, sleeping 2 and has a sauna and a small terrace which leads off the kitchen. Corner Apartment 4 is 52 sqm and sleeps 2 and has a very spacious bathroom complete with a Turkish bath. The dining room features contemporary furniture by Martin Bachmann including a cement table. Grand Apartment sleeps up to 4 people where the old cement tiles and the large mantelpiece in the bedroom go hand in hand with industrial style furnishings and elements. There is a large table in the open plan living room for work meetings or small dinners and there is also a very comfortable sofa bed. The bedroom overlooks the back of the Quirinale, the Presidential residence, and, through a bizarre walk-in cupboard, which reminds you of the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, you reach the inner facing terrace. Corner Apartment 5 sleeps 2 and has a lovely bedroom overlooking the square with an en-suite bathroom with a Turkish bath. I can be joined to Apt. 4 to sleep 4 people and the beds can be made into twin beds. Double Corner Apartments 4 and 5 can be joined together to create a massive apartment of more than 100sqm. Please note that smoking is not permitted in any of the apartments.
